  • Hi Jerry,

    I think you have connected Report Builder to your Report Server. In this fashion, the .rdl file is saved to the server.

    You could click the file -> "save as" to save the .rdl file in local folder.

    Or, you could open your Report Manager within browser, and download the already saved report on server.

    Regards,
